Gone Cosmic is my new example of a perfect jam band. The evidence is clear in their new album titled ‘Sideways In Time’. There is that utter excitement one gets when you listen to a band or artist and realize within the first few notes that this band or artist is adventurous, to say the least. I love that free-for-all attitude and care-free songwriting technique and absolute lack of fear to tread along the sonic highway.

‘Sideways In Time’ is out via Kozmik Artifactz on April 12th.

About Gone Cosmic
Championed by a soaring songstress Abbie Thurgood (The Torchettes), whose boldly evocative tones recall Skunk Anansie chanteuse Skin and Alabama Shakes’ Brittany Howard, and accompanied by an agile and aggressive psych-rock outfit, composed of guitarist Devin “Darty” Purdy (Chron Goblin), bass player Brett Whittingham (Chron Goblin), percussionist Marcello Castronuovo (Witchstone), Gone Cosmic has carved out an expansive domain that stretches from sweltering Southern sludge pits to breath-stealing sonic spacewalks.

A blood (orange)-scented breeze that bows the trees, Gone Cosmic chases the infinite haze from the skies and puts it right back in your eyes. Groove-mining breakdowns become the stuff of legend as the four pieces’ floor-thudding tail kick and hellfire halo holler originates a whole that is far more potent than the sum of its individual elements. Meet your new astromancers, the phase-shifting and hard-rocking force that channels the empyreal sounds of heaven on Earth.

“And then there’s Gone Cosmic with their Sideways In Time album, released through Kozmik Artifactz. Set for an early April release this is some grade A, female-fronted psych rock, it whirls and it winds and it wails like a hard rocking banshee on the prowl! Simply stunning!”
– Stoner Hive

“Gone Cosmic give it a really good go through. Doing so with serious aplomb as the superb vocal range of vocalist Abbie Thurgood leads us through a selection of rollicking fuzzed out riff-heavy tracks. From other-worldly and expansive walks through unknown landscapes to sludge-infused Southern rock and roll swamp treks, Gone Cosmic takes us on a sonic journey.”
– Games, Brrrains & A Head-Banging Life

“Sideways in Time will teleport you to a place where the beautiful and the brutal collide- it’s as if Mastodon and Pink Floyd had a love child that was raised by Janis Joplin and grew up listening to Black Sabbath.”
– Cody Smith – Frog E Style Productions

“It feels like an evolution of the genre”
– Chris Beck – Doom Tomb

“Fresh off of announcing their signing to the Kozmik Artifactz label before the April release of their debut Sideways in Time (so bleeding bloody good, by the way), this Calgary supergroup comprised of members of Chron Goblin, Witchstone and Joplin-esque lung pummeler Abbie Thurgood, formerly of The Torchettes, are a heavy, groovy, psych-storm, head trip. You’re welcome.”
– Mike Bell – YYScene

“ It works in a spectacularly gnarly and boombastic, rifftastic, fantastic Joplin blues-rock way.”
– Mike Bell – YYScene

“Awakening the ears and seducing souls with an addictive pairing of folk-blues and psych-rock, Calgary’s Gone Cosmic is a band that thrives on the mix of complementary and contrasting traits that each member brings to the party. “
– Christine Leonard – Beatroute

“The electromagnetic energy generated when Thurgood’s soaring vocals and passionate lyrical narratives are added to the compelling riffs and hypnotic pulses of the band’s instrumentation is a stunning and stimulating force to behold. “
